Configure your merchandise product
If you are selling a physical item using Topspin, you will first need to create it in your Products tab. Physical products include CDs, DVDs, t-shirts, stickers, hats or anything that would need to be shipped to a fan.
Click Add Product and select Merchandise
Enter the name and a brief description of the item
Name variable attributes
If you are selling different combinations of a product, you can create multiple choices at checkout by utilizing attributes. Each variation will create a different SKU, so the fewer choices the better. Separate multiple attributes with a single comma (,) without any spaces.
We recommend utilizing less than 5 names, with no more than 5 values each for best results. Any more names or values will create large numbers of SKUs, which may in turn make it a little difficult to manage inventory. If you do require multiple names, it would be best to create multiple products with fewer choices.
For example, instead of creating a single merchandise product with both Male and Female attributes, it would be better to create 1 merchandise product for the Male shirt, and 1 separate merchandise product for the Female shirt. That's one fewer step that a fan would need to complete during checkout.
